Tim, that is not a 1. Germans captured Paris 78 years ago today June 14th. France surrendered June 22, I believe Hitler toured Paris June 23. As of picture my guess the 22nd, hopes this helps and cool pic.

Thank you for reply!!

Although, this parade was not "in Paris".
This was a photo taken at the parade of 7.Panzer-Division in Bordeaux
It's the day of "29 June" or "1 July".
